COUNTRY CORNERS VETERINARY HOSPITAL CELEBRATING NATIONAL PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH

February is National Pet Dental Health Month and, for the 21st year, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is co-sponsoring the popular ‘Pets Need Dental Care, Too’ campaign with the American Veterinary Dental Society and Hill’s Pet Nutrition.  Country Corners Veterinary Hospital is celebrating National Pet Dental Health Month this February as well.  We will be offering 20% off dental procedures (cleanings/extractions etc) from February 1st through February 28th.   Pets who receive dental services will be sent home with an at home care kit and samples of dental care products to help slow and control future dental disease at no charge.  No coupon is required for this event.

Dental disease is one of the most common problems we see at Country Corners. Nationally, periodontal disease is the most commonly diagnosed disease in cats and dogs over the age of 3 years. About half of the dogs and cats over 5 years old seen at this hospital suffer from significant painful dental disease.  Dental disease is not just a disease of your pet’s mouth.  Horses with bad teeth will often be at risk for poor weight, colic, abscesses in the mouth and training problems.  Dogs and cats with dental disease often have bacteria shedding into their blood stream and this is harmful for their immune system, their kidneys and the valves of their hearts.

SYMPTOMS OF DENTAL DISEAE:   Deposits of tartar and swelling/redness of the gums especially on the back teeth in larger dogs and the front teeth in smaller dogs, mobile or loose/wiggly teeth, bad odor in the mouth, swelling of the skin below the eyes (often a sign of a root abscess in the fourth upper premolars usually because of a slab fracture of the crown of the tooth from chewing hard objects like rocks or bones), eating or chewing with only one side of the mouth, dropping food or acting as if eating is painful.

BUT MY DOG’S MOUTH IS NOT PAINFUL DOC: Interestingly, most of my clients do not appreciate that their pets with significantly infected/inflamed mouths have any pain.  Because dental disease is usually a gradually progressive problem, our pets become used to the pain in their mouths.   It is common for my clients to report after the dental disease is addressed (i.e. cleaning, removing infected teeth) that their pet is so much brighter and happier!

For those of you out there whose pet’s mouths are doing great….keep brushing!  Brushing your pet’s teeth once daily starting when they are puppies/kittens significantly prolongs the need for veterinary dental intervention.   For those whose pets won’t allow a brush within a country mile there are other options too to help like CET chews and water additives as well as T/D diet.

We are already filling up our appointments for dentals in February very quickly.  Please call us if you would like more information or an appointment.  530-692-9552.

COVID-19

For the safety of our staff and other clients if you are exhibiting any symptoms of being sick (coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, etc.) we are requesting that you return to your vehicle and reschedule your appointment for a later date.  If your pet is sick please try to find an individual that is not ill nor has been exposed to the household to bring your pet in.

Updated July 10, 2020

Country Corners Veterinary Hospital is currently open for the care of your pet.  We are still practicing under the state imposed guidelines.  This includes safe social distancing of 6 feet and no clients are currently allowed in the hospital.

When you arrive for your appointment we will need you to call the receptionist and let us know you are in the parking lot.  One of our assistants will come out to your vehicle, get a history and bring your pet into the hospital.  We will perform our examination and the doctor/assistant will come back out to your car with our findings and treatment options.  Once your appointment is finished we will bring your pet back to you and the receptionist will come out to finalize payment and go over medications.

We are also operating under reduced hours during the pandemic .  We are now open Monday to Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  We also request on any prescription refills that you plan accordingly and give us 24 to 48 hours to fill.

We understand that this is an inconvenience and are sorry in advance.
